Oracle System Assistant is a single-server system management tool for Oracle x86 servers. It integrates Oracle's Single System Management products, the Oracle System Assistant application, and a selection of related software to provide a suite of tools that allow for the quick and convenient startup and management of your server.
You can access Oracle System Assistant locally, or using a local console connection, or remotely using the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console application.
If you just completed the installation of the server, then using Oracle System Assistant locally (while physically present at the server) can be a fast and efficient method of starting up the server. Once the server is operational, you can conveniently access Oracle System Assistant remotely while still retaining full-featured functionality.
The components of Oracle System Assistant include:
Oracle System Assistant application
Hardware Management Pack
User interface access for startup and maintenance provisioning tasks (including Install OS task)
Oracle System Assistant command-line environment
Operating system software, drivers, and tools
Server-specific and related documentation
Oracle System Assistant resides inside the server as an embedded storage device (USB flash drive). The drive is factory configured with a server-specific version of Oracle System Assistant that is maintained as such by using online updates for all components.
